the north east heaviest snowfall will be in the norton pa., upstate new york and endless sections of new england states. the storm is set to end tomorrow morning before it heads to canada. >> if you are planning to make a trip to the sierra mountains anytime soon authorities want to remind drivers to make sure to have chains handy. if this affects drivers driving up on interstate 80 and highway 50. caltran advisers are still any effect. and for good reason snow has been coming down along those highways leaving behind slick and icy roads. the >> it is a very slow trade as you travel up. we will not check with erik up about the snow. >> i have been checking with some of resources and a higher elevations are averaging about 20 in.. a lot of people are excited to head up there. we do have some advisory's and watches and warnings for the greater tahoe area. you should certainly keep your chains handy. temperatures are average about we do have a problem for another score storm later on. it is a very cold start for the morning. we do have several spots that are in the lower 40's. it is 42 degre
. >> ms. norton? >> thank you, mr. chairman. mr. secretary, you've earned many happy birthdays for your long service to the united states in many capacities. >> thank you. >> first, i want to commend you and this administration. when i said let's get started, you got us started. you moved us off the dime. you've got 151 projects, they're all obligated. yes, you have some states divided, and, um, when they are divided, i think you're doing the right thing, take back the money. and look what you get, you get a bonanza of other jurisdictions. if florida and california are still debating whether or not they want to become second class states, be my guest. there will be many other states that move forward. and this is a country of jurisdictions. and some will come later -- all will come, and those who come early will be ahead. now, i indicated when we began that my concern is to produce -- intent on this project about a train to nowhere is unfortunately. but let me indicate one way that i think we could get over that. i think that hag -- has a lot to do with the fact that here again we are a

wrong. isn't that the test for insanity? >> it's interesting, new york followed what we remember the mcnorton rule and until 1965 and then they went with a slightly different iteration. one can you appreciate the facts of what you are doing. you are squeezing someone's neck and you think are squeezing lemons and number two, you know what you are doing is wrong. there is a couple interesting points. number one she ran away from the scene. show theoretically. >> gregg: consciousness of guilt? >> conscious necessary you know what you did is wrong. two, her specific language about because he is muslim is same argument. >> she admitted in doing it. it's not all the aliens were following me, she pushed him. i targeted this person. >> gregg: in the case of andrea yates, she drowned her children in the bathtub. she called police which prosecutors used against her and said, hey, she understood what she had done and knew that it was wrong. she was eventually on a second trial found to be insane. >> that is the flip side of what you just said. you have to be crazy to call the police, right? that is inte
the district of columbia, ms. norton, talk about the fact that we now are going to have recognition of flags in the district of columbia for our veterans. and there is inclusion in this conference report that deals with that issue. . flags are used to recognize their presence and of course veterans from the states across the country, the district of columbia hasn't. i'm pleased that ms. norton was able to have that issue addressed in the national defense authorization act conference report. and so this is a measure which i believe really transcends political party, there's great bipartisan support for it and it also covers lots of important issues that do come back to our nation's security. and so i believe, mr. speaker, that as we look again at those five most important words from my perspective in the middle of the preamble of the u.s. constitution, providing for the common defense, that we are doing that and exactly that with this measure. so i encourage my colleagues to support this conference -- the rule and the conference report that we will have and i believe it will be of great benef
